What can the big clubs do? 0

Posted on April 20, 2020 by Harry Kettle

We hope you’re all having as good of a time as you possibly can be right now given the bizarre set of circumstances that we’re currently faced with. As we look ahead to the immediate future, there’s no real telling as to when we’re going to receive the ‘all clear’ for life to go back to football – and, of course, for football to go back to normal.

Perhaps this time away from the game will allow us to reflect on why exactly we love and admire it so much. If that is indeed the case, then we’d love to know what you guys have been up to in this downtime away from seeing the Gunners play.

Pablo Mari has revealed he is keen to turn his loan from Flamengo to Arsenal into a permanent transfer.

The defender joined the Gunners on a temporary basis in January this year and has so far made two appearances for the club, a 1-0 win over West Ham in the Premier League and a 0-2 win away to Portsmouth in the FA Cup. His performance on both occasions could only be described as impressive, especially given that most players need at least a little bit of time to adapt and show their potential after moving to a new club and a new league.

Arsenal have submitted a bid for Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey, according to Daily Express.

Partey has been on Atletico books for his whole career so far. He has had loan spells as a youngster, first with RCD Mallorca in 2013/14, and then with UD Almeria the following season. After his return to the parent club in 2015, the number of games he was involved in gradually grew from season to season. This term he has made 35 competitive appearances in all competitions before the Coronavirus pandemic caused football to stop; 31 of those were starts.

This is a quick message from us to you, wishing you all a very late Happy Easter! It’s been a difficult period of time for everyone over the course of the last few weeks, and for some, the last few months.

Hopefully, you’ve been able to take some level of enjoyment out of whatever it is you’ve been doing in the last few days to keep yourselves occupied. We’re all waiting to see when football is going to return, with the predictions of when that will be varying greatly, but either way, we just hope you’re all staying fit and healthy.

Premier League restart date to be pushed back 0

Posted on April 03, 2020 by Harry Kettle

The restart date of the Premier League is set to be pushed back beyond April 30 during a meeting of all 20 teams later today.

It’s been a strange few weeks for teams all throughout world football, and that’s certainly true for the English Premier League. It seemed as if they were ready to push forward with putting on games, despite other leagues around the globe postponing or suspending their seasons.

Then, after it was revealed that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had tested positive for COVID-19, a decision was finally made to call things off for the time being.

On the evening on March 12th, Arsenal confirmed that manager Mikel Arteta had received a positive COVID-19 result.

The Gunners played a two-leg tie against Olympiacos in the Europa League round of 32 earlier, and despite a 0-1 win in Greece, they were knocked out after losing the second leg at the Emirates. The Coronavirus outbreak was at its early stages at the time, but it was soon reported that Olympiacos owner, Evangelos Marinakis, who also owns Nottingham Forest, had tested positive to the disease. Naturally, it meant that the whole Arsenal squad were potentially exposed, but it was Arteta who caught the virus first.

Arsenal confident of Ceballos loan extension amid season uncertainty 0

Posted on March 25, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to the Evening Standard, Arsenal are confident that they will be able to extend the loan deal for Dani Ceballos past the date agreed for its expiration – June 30th.

The game has been completely suspended across Europe and at the moment, it’s hard to foresee when or how the 2019/20 season will end. In England, the suspension is currently set to last until the end of April at the earliest, and the Premier League clubs are scheduled to hold a meeting early next month to discuss the possibility of a ‘best-case scenario’ – the season being continued sometime in the middle of May. If that proves doable, the goal will be to finish the campaign before the end of June, but there is still a strong possibility of league games being played well into the summer.

Posted on March 18, 2020 by Harry Kettle

“The health of fans, staff and players has to be our number one priority and, in that spirit, UEFA tabled a range of options so that competitions can finish this season safely and I am proud of the response of my colleagues across European football. There was a real spirit of cooperation, with everyone recognising that they had to sacrifice something in order to achieve the best result.
